Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 received the 9mm Daemon weapon with the Season 5 Reloaded update. It was added to the Handgun class and arrived alongside the new melee weapon and the Lachmann Shroud. While this latest sidearm’s performance may seem underwhelming, it has the potential to rip through Operators in the multiplayer maps and modes.
Popular Modern Warfare 2 content creator Hero showcased a new build for the 9mm Daemon pistol in a recent YouTube video. They boast about its capability to take down enemies with two shots to the head and only three to the body in close range. It can be utilized as the primary weapon in multiplayer modes for securing high-kill matches.
This article will highlight Hero’s best 9mm Daemon build for Modern Warfare 2.
Best 9mm Daemon loadout in Modern Warfare 2
Hero recommends that players should utilize his setup for the 9mm Daemon to make the most of it. Here is the complete weapon build with a brief description of how the attachments enhance the gun’s capabilities.
Recommended build and tuning:
- Barrel: SA Longfire (0.35 vertical, 0.1 horizontal)
- Laser: XTEN Sidearm-L400 (-0.31 vertical, -31.26 horizontal)
- Trigger Action: DEX8 Trigger (0.13 vertical, -0.07 horizontal)
- Magazine: 26 Round Mag
- Rear Grip: Akimbo 9mm Daemon
The SA Longfire barrel increases damage range, hip fire accuracy, and bullet velocity for the best close- and mid-range gunfight results. The XTEN Sidearm-L400 laser attachment improves hip fire accuracy and hip recoil control. The DEX8 Trigger boosts the aiming idle stability and the fire rate of the weapon.
The 26-round extended magazine is crucial in the multiplayer mode as one has to fight off hordes of enemy players. The Akimbo 9mm Daemon rear grip enables players to wield two pistols, but they lose out on the ability to Aim Down Sight (ADS).
Note: The Akimbo rear grip is currently unavailable in live matches and can only be used in private matches. The developer is aware and reportedly working on a fix.
